Another week and another prominent Soundcloud account, NTS Radio to be exact, banned for presumably multiple copyright violations.

The Dalston-based online radio station – which was setup in 2011 by Femi Adeyem who was one of the original founders of The Boiler Room – shared a picture of their now deleted account online earlier today.

Fortunately, the popular radio station has been moving their wares over to Mixcloud so were clearly prepared for Soundcloud’s ban hammer.

If Soundcloud carries on like this there won’t be anyone left on the service by the time they’ve begun to monetise it.

This scatter gun approach – alongside rumours that it’s running out of money and facing legal proceedings – has seen the service come under constant pressure from users and the press throughout 2015.

So what does it all mean for music blogs?
